Recommends it for: No one
This was one of the worst 'inspirational' books that I have ever read. I have a rule that once I start a book, that I will finish it regardless of how bad it may be. This was the type of book where I actually had to 'apply' my rule.

I would not reccomend it to anyone.

this is a good book to pick up on a dark day. there are multiple entries of goodness happening and much encouragement. at the end of the day you are not alone. there might be someone who had a similar experience and can read how they dealt with it. good book to pass along to a friend.

“I suddenly felt like the Grinch feels when he discovers what Chrismas is all about. For the first time in a long time, I felt like I had a purpose being in the Navy. It wasn't about money and rank or prestige. It was about raising the flag. We do what we do because no one else can or will do it. We fight so others can sleep at night. And I had forgotten that.” 12 likes
